To prepare the chinese cabbage salad with tofu start cutting the tofu into 12 slices.
Peel and roughly chop the onion. Peel the ginger and cut into smaller pieces. Put both into a liquidiser with the curry paste, coriander, coconut milk and curry powder and puree finely.
Mix with the tofu and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
For the salad, wash and shred the Chinese cabbage.
Peel the carrots and cut lengthwise into thin julienne strips.
Wash the spring onion and cut into thin rings.
Wash, halve and core the red pepper and cut into thin strips.
Put all the Chinese cabbage salad ingredients into a bowl and mix carefully.
Put the ingredients for the dressing into a salad dressing shaker and mix well.
Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan and fry the marinated tofu on both sides over a medium heat for 5-8 minutes.
